How Much Does Alternator for a Car Cost?

Car alternators are the devices responsible for charging the battery and powering the electrical system while the engine runs; it’s often referred to as the hardest working part in the car.  Car alternators have a voltage regulator that operates by modulating the small field current that produces a constant voltage to the stator output.  Once the engine is running and the alternator is generating power, a diode feeds the current from the alternator main output that equalizes the voltage through the warning indicator that shuts off.
